Eclipse Indigo: EGit and JGit reach version 1.0
Eclipse projects EGit and JGit have reached an important milestone – both projects have now released 1.0 versions, thereby graduating from the Eclipse Foundation's incubation stage. JGit 1.0 adds Git Porcelain commands and a jgit.storage.dht implementation. The latter makes it possible to store a Git repository in a distributed hash table, NoSQL system or other database. Also new is support for JGit Ant tasks such as git-init, git-clone and git-checkout. Changes in EGit 1.0 include the addition of a connector to the GitHub repository. The diagram below illustrates the development status of EGit and what's coming on the roadmap.
Source: Chris Aniszczyk, Shawn Pearce, Matthias Sohn: "EGit and JGit 1.0 Release and Graduation Review" EGit is the Eclipse Team provider for distributed version control system Git and provides the tooling for Git Java implementation JGit. Companies including GitHub, Google, IBM, Red Hat, SAP and Tasktop were involved in developing the two projects.
Both projects are part of Eclipse Indigo, the annual collection of Eclipse projects, due to be released on 22 June. They are set to take on a key role, as they will be used for future Eclipse development.
